Blue Boy and Co. is a survey of The Huntington Library’s collection of European art and British Grand Manner portraits.

A collage of Henry Huntington's purchase receipts fill the endpapers as a prelude to the collection, followed by historical photographs of the Library reproduced as blue duotones.

Typography is set in Figgins Sans, a revival of British sans-serif types from the early 19th century. Long-form text is printed as a deep blue spot color throughout, while the full color plates are punctuated by metallic gold captions.
